FIND TRANQUILLITY AND ADVENTURE AT THE WINTERTUIN EXPERIENCE
For the first time in the more than 100 years since it was founded in 1915, the Wintertuin in Baarn is open to visitors. Previously a botanical greenhouse, the Wintertuin is now a tea garden and patio and home to the Elixir Escape Rooms and a unique iPad game in the Cantonspark.
Both the Wintertuin and the Cantonspark are national monuments. While the park has been open for several years, few people outside Baarn (or in Baarn, for that matter) know about the Wintertuin. That makes it a hidden gem that is more than worth the effort of a visit. Now, for the first time since 1915, the Wintertuin is open for the public to experience: whether it's the tea garden, escape room or the former botanical greenhouse. (Tip: be sure to check out the Wintertuin’s gigantic living ‘green wall’.) The Wintertuin holds appeal for a wide range of visitors, from those in search of tranquillity and a soothing cup of tea to adventure-seekers of all ages.

Elixir Escape Room
It is 1929. Hidden in the jungle of an enormous glass greenhouse, surrounded by bizarre instruments and exotic plants, a passionate botanist has spent years working to achieve a lofty ambition: creating the elixir of life. There are even rumours that the professor has a secret laboratory, in which everything is poised and waiting for the missing ingredient derived from the Selenicereus grandiflorus, the ‘Queen of the Night’, which blooms only once in a blue moon...
